Egg Nog
« on: December 25, 2012, 08:11:50 PM »
You gave them spiked eggnog last night, didn't you? :scrutiny

That's kinda redundant, isn't it? Kinda like saying spiked bourbon?

I got lucky and found some Glennfiddich at the place I'm staying, so I'm happy.


Also, I like mixing virgin eggnog with vodka.

I love eggnog. Any eggnog. Except healthy eggnog. Apparently the hippies have out non-fat, non-dairy vegan eggnog now. I don't know how that works- no darned egg, no darned nog. It's like Grape-Nuts. I think I'd rather shoot myself.

Not necessarily, but theoretically, yes. ;)

That link may or may not work - I used my phone to c'n'p the link. It's to Epicurious.com's Kentucky Eggnog Spike - brandy, rum and bourbon infused with vanilla and spices... Sounds lethal.

My recipe is from my uncle. His is better.

1Gal jug/pitcher
2qts store bought egg nog.
1qt egg nog ice cream (uncle owned a Baskin Robins)
Makers Mark to taste.

I made this last year and apparently, since I check for "taste" as I'm making it, and end up a couple shots deep before I'm done, my egg nog was a bit stout. I brought it to a party and brought the rest of the Makers Mark with me so people could add more if they thought it was too weak. I asked the hostess to try it, and she coughed, "it's good."

I used to love eggnog, but at some point it started tasting like snot with sugar and nutmeg.

Did the eggnog change, or your tastes?

I ask, because store bought egg nog is hit or miss, with more miss than hit. Store bought apple cider is the same way. It probably has something to do with the pasteurization required for mass marketing. It is undoubtedly safer and cheaper, and it tastes all wrong.

We get our eggnog from a local amish creamery. They do it right.

You do have to add your own liquor, though. ;)

For apple cider, try SimplyApple - the same folks that do SimplyOrange. Good stuff.

Classic.   :rotfl      Isn't eggnog basically watery custard with a kick at the end?   I'll stick with my Olde English plum pudding with brandy hard sauce.   If the pudding starts to dry out just soak it with more brandy.    One year we found a piece in May still wrapped in foil in the back of the 'fridge - took it out soaked it in brandy for an hour or so and voila' - good as new.

You must have had Calder's.

Eggnog is thick as a standard, but you shouldn't be able to stand a crowbar up in it.

If it'll dissolve a crowbar, you're getting close.

you can make a hot cocoa version as well, just add a teaspoon or two of unsweetened cocoa powder instead of the nutmeg and serve hot

I think the one with nutmeg sounds better.  So, you eat the dates when you're finished boiling them?

I chop up the dates and simmer them in the coconut milk for about 10 minutes, then used a stick blender to blend them in and added the nutmeg
